Default double bass drum pedals

Hey, I would like to buy a drum pedal that could fit my budget (....-€250), but the problem is, I'm left-handed (lol almost sounds like a handicap ^^)
I've been looking around and noticed that there aren't that much cheap pedals.
A few I found (on thomann's website) are these:

€160 MAPEX P380LA DOPPELFUßPEDAL LINKS
€190PEARL P-902L DOPPEL BASS PEDAL LINKS
€230 SONOR DP 472 L DOPPELFUßMASCH. LINKS

Does anyone have any experience with any of these, and which one is good or not good, or do you know any other good pedals (left-handed) that have a reasonably budget.

Thanx ^^

Being left-handed shouldn't be much of a problem. Often there are good pedals available in right-handed or left handed. Out of all those three, I would chose the Sonor, all three I guess are within in your price range but Sonor is best quality and for the that price is very reasonable.

To tell you the truth, for a left-hander in a right-handed world it is difficult, often left handed products are more costly than the right handed ones, don't be surprised if you find the pedal your looking for slightly above your price range.

If you are looking for pedals that are suited and balanced for both right-handers and left-handers Sleishman Twin Pedal or Offset (company name) double pedals are another option, but the price range may be too high.

i'd choose the pearl pedal, although the sonor pedal is good, i would go with the pearl purely for the very smooth feel of the P-900 series pedals, all mapex pedals i have tried have had a rough feeling to them. But if you can, go out and try these pedals or write down a list and see what all the pedals have in common and what they dont have in common and make your decision on which one looks better based on how it is made and its features.
